can agree on george bush deserves no credit for that war. you would never know it from yesterday's white house briefing. i mean jay carney was asked about the administration's reactions to the anniversary. he said, we are glad the war is over, we salute our men and women in the military. a reporter from fox says well, if the iraqi people are better off because saddam hussein is no longer there, you have to give george bush some credit. i almost fell off of my chair. jay carney said, of course we give george bush some credit. no we don't. no we don't. everything george bush said about the reason for starting that war turned out to be a big, fat law. no weapons of mass destruction, no nukes, no navy no air force, no justification for war. yes, our men and women in the military did a good job in iraq. but george bush gets no credit for starting that war in the first place. hey, see you right back here tomorrow. have a good one. >> this is "the bill press show." ♪ theme ♪ >> well, it's day three of the hostage negotiation known as he will's park sit

from those on the ground. the united states can not do it from the outside. george bush tried unsuccessfully. every president has tried and all failed because of the participants. >> what has changed? the settlements continue, but it is no long number one on presidt obama's agenda. >> the president has acknowledged the mistake early on, but let's be frank, the relationship has changed. netanyahu embraced, endorsed and basically campaigned for mitt romney, who did not carry florida, which was supposed to be the cornerstone of the campaign strategy. barack obama did get reelected and made a case that the two- state solution was imperative for israel's values, that we do not have people that will be stopped at every checkpoint and cannot move freely in their homeland. making an appeal to jewish values and traditions. i thought it was great. >> it is pushing on an open door. the israelis have offered peace. they offered peace in 1967, at camp david in 2000 and in 2008. the point is not the settlemen s , and that is the reason it is important what obama said. he essentially said it
:16:00 p.m. eastern, president bush addressed the nation from the oval office. >> my fellow citizens. at this hour, american coalition forces are in the early stage of military operations to disarm iraq, free its people and defend the world from great danger. >> bret: since that time, 1.5 million american troops served inside iraq. nearly 4 ,500 were killed there. more than 32,000 american troops were wounded in iraq. more than 100 iraqis died in the fighting. more than a year after american troops left iraq is still bloody battlefield. today, as we said, series of apparently coordinated bombings. death toll is 65. could still rise. david is an international lawyer with the d.c. firm patton boggs and used to be head of the rule of law for the state department inside baghdad. he returned there this week to work on investment project and really spent the day trying to stay safe. he joins us now by phone live in baghdad after leaving his hotel due to the danger of the bombing attacks. dave, thank you for joining us. what can you tell us about today? >> thanks, bret. the ten-year anniver

. the timing isn't uncommon. his predecessor george w. bush waited for the last year of his second term. presidents reagan and bush 41 never visited as president. this trip was never supposed to be about breakthroughs. more like showing the flag, solidifying relationships, but even that is fraught in what's been an at times rocky relationship. and in what has always been a dangerous neighborhood. it's where we begin tonight. our chief foreign correspondent richard engel is there. our chief white house correspondent chuck todd starts us off, traveling with the president in jerusalem. chuck, good evening. >> reporter: good evening, brian. it has been a busy first day for president obama here in israel. while the trip itself is designed for the president to improve his personal relationship with the israeli

was president. [laughter] >> we are going to make george bush the president of the republicans now for quite a while, and we will continue that. we really only have 1 1/2 political parties in the country now. there is a misreading of the republican party in terms of what the problems were. the fact of the matter is republican party is the dominant political party from 1978 until the summer of 2005, but the party ran out of gas in the summer of 2005, the effects of the war, katrina, where people would say, what is wrong with the republicans? they have had seven or eight years now where republicans are roaming around in terms of their future, and they are not closer now than they were then. political parties cannot fix the problem of a party, but they have to avoid becoming a liability. the job of the political party is to make a flat playing field, so the future of either party will determine who the nominee is and the next president is. until republicans take the white house back, they will be defined as a congressional party, the tea party, great for us, and whoever is the craziest person g

remember when the bush tax cuts first came out and tom daschle and dick gephardt were the minority leaders. they didn't have anything. they didn't have the house and they didn't have the senate or the white house. yet they came out with this ridiculous show for the press with visual aids. they had to "meet the press" outside because they had a brand-new lexus and they had a rusty muffler. that is what he is going to get, the rich guy. this is all you are getting and basically they said there is nothing in it for you if you are middle class or poor. this is only for the rich and we know that is not true. most people bought it and in fact to this day, most republicans i talk to its unbelievable. forget about the truth. is the perception of the truth. it's amazing. terms like gridlock, a came from them. the last congress was the worst congress ever because they got less done. not quality, quantity. >> guest: very good points. look, the democrats attacked the reagan tax cuts and said they would be awful and unfair and of course we got the longest movement in american history and they attacked

, it is the anniversary of the iraq war and tell me what president bush's legacy as it pertains to the iraq war. >> well, i was a journalist in 2003 when the iraq war began. i editorialized. i looked at three different occasions we need to be careful about how we go to war. we need to be skeptical of the claims that the administration was making at that time. now i was sitting in a cheap seat. i totally confess that, but there were a lot of people at the time who understood that there was not a lot of credibility. the administrations claims. we know now that the administrations deliberately message whatever evidence we had deliberately lied about many things. i think ultimately his legacy with regard to iraq was that he was largely responsible for taking 4500 lives and changing the lives of 30,000 other americans who were severely wounded in that conflict. i think ultimately history will judge him rather harshly. >> michael: yes, i think it's a sad and rather pathetic legacy when that is your legacy. i wish we had a congress full of john yarmuth. thank you for being here in "the war room." it's great to
. former florida governor jeb bush used last week's conservative political action conference to foreshadow many of the conclusions contained in today's report. >> we must move beyond the divisive and extraneous issues that currently define the public debate. never again, never again can the republican party simply ride off... write off entire segments of our society because we assume our principles have limited appeal. they have broad appeal. >> ifill: but senator marco rubio told the conservative meeting that the party should not embrace change for its own sake. >> and so our challenge is to create an agenda applying our principles. our principles, they still work. applying our time-tested principles to the challenges of today. >> ifill: yet the biggest hit at last week's conference hailed from outside the national party mainstream. they included kentucky senator rand paul, south carolina governor nicky haley and 2008 vice presidential nominee sarah palin. joining joining us now to talk about how deep the party's fissures go are susan page, washington bureau chief for "u.s.a. today." and

[laughter] bill plante. guest: he had a painful moment. he was getting at something that -- he had a playful moment, but he was getting as something that was true. they all try to get the attention of the president. he can choose to call on someone or choose not to answer. it is in his hands. that used to be the norm for news conferences. somewhere around the reagan era , it got some dates. people waited to be called on. -- it got very sedate. list already has a prepared of the reporters on whom he is going to call. it is hard to get recognized. president reagan once recognized a venerable reporter from texas, a woman

on the street of london. even if barack obama or bush wanted to, obviously the secret service would not let them get out of the limo and interfere with a mugging or run to a building. it's a different kind of job. it has a symbolic power. in the end we're not surprised when you see a mayor out at the site of an accident or pulling somebody out of a burning buildings, ultimately the mayor sees himself, herself, first of all, as a neighborhood. someone who has to solve problems. this is reflected by the way in the statistics. we know that the trust in public authorities in american throughout the western world and much of the world has plummeted. congress has 12% in some poll, the presidency, not this president, the 30 and 0th. this president is considered wildly popular because he has 52% support right now. the supreme court numbers have gone down. mayors and city counsel are still in the '70s and '80s. some say it's the hallow effect. you are exempt from the general critique. neighbors retain trust in democracy that has been largely lost elsewhere, which means also our relationship to our town a
or anti-israel. and that to me is like saying if you criticize the bush administration, you are un-american. that paints everybody into a corner where nobody can make progress. >> there is a complicated issue. i was raised jewish and there are conversations that happen at home with members of my family and extended friends and family about how i feel about our relationship with israel and how they feel, and there's an undying undying devotion with israel. >> hal: right. when we come back, we're going to discuss that. 1-800-steph-1-2 is our number. heard the president say the other night? is this personal or is it political? a lot of my work happens by doing the things that i am given to doing anyway. staying in tough with everything that is going on politically and putting my own nuance on it. not only does senator rubio just care about rich people but somehow he thinks raising the minimum wage is a bad idea for the middle class. but we do care about them, right? vo: the war room tonight at 6 eastern ♪ >> hal: that is so -- there's just something warm and inviting about
in the history of the u.s./israeli relations. it goes beyond begin and carter and bush 41 and the reality is that no american president for political reasons and policy reasons can afford to have this sort of relationship. a lot of it rests on netanyahu and his first incarnation. even clinton, a guy who was prepared to cut him all kinds of breaks was annoyed in extreme us with some of netanyahu's frustrating behavior. but the reality is that barack obama has to clear away this old business, this dysfunctional relationship and he has to deal with two basic realities. he does not want to be the american president on whose watch the two-state solution expires and he certainly doesn't want to be the america president on whose watch iran acquire it is xas capacity or everybody a nuclear weapon. so israel is central to both of those stories. he's going early, there's no expectations and he's going early with a view i suspect to seeing whether or not he can't manage that relationship with netanyahu more effectively and create a new relationship with an israeli public who's deeply mistrustful of
years. and it is just a colossal, strategic failure of the bush administration to know that we had almost 4,500 of america's best and brightest killed in action, over 32,000 wounded in action, and over 100,000 iraqis dead for an unnecessary war. and a war that should basically never have happened and also a war that we put our troops into harm's way, basically over a religious civil war without the amount of troops that the military generals asked for. >> what do you remember when you see this piece of news that we're reporting today? what do you remember back to the time when you were serving? >> i served in south central baghdad. it was a sunni and shia neighborhood. >> just the case today, according to what we understand now. >> exactly. and i'm still haunted by the fact that mean the of the guys i served with never made it home. to know that folks who are responsible have never been held accountable. whether that's public perception or otherwise is pretty disheartening. >> who needs to be held accountable? >> i think the architects of the war. addiction cheney, paul wolf wits,
and launch the effort far sooner than either bill clinton or george w. bush did in their administrations. then it fell flat quickly. what was interesting to hear what the president said when he arrived formally as to why he made this his first trip of his second term. >> across this region the winds of change bring both promise and peril. so i see this visit as an opportunity to reaffirm the unbreakable bond between our nations, to restate america's unwavering commitment to israel's security, and to speak directly to the people of israel and to your neighbors. >> and he's going to be going to ramallah meeting with the palestinian authority there, the head there, abbas in the west bank. he's meeting with jord ab's king abdullah on this trip with mubarak not in egypt anymore, the single most important arab leader in the peace process if something happens. now president perez, he spoke about the peace process after the president spoke. >> we long to see an end to the conflict with the palestinians, to see the palestinians enjoying fraed freedom and prosperity in their own state. we extend o
to the cairo speech, which was a speech to the arab and muslim world, the belief that bush had ruined america's reputation in the arab and muslim world. and that he needed to fix that. after all, we had 150,000 troops deployed in afghanistan and iraq. he was about to send more. we needed to improve our relations with the arabs and the muslims. and if we could achieve that, i think he felt that would redound to the benefit of israel because then the arabs would be prepared to engage with israel in response to our influence on them, and israel would then respond. that was essentially, as i understand, his theory of the case. and so essentially the message that he was playing to the arab world was i care about you. i understand your concerns. and-- . >> rose: the image of america is no longer the image i want you to have of america. >> correct. and by the way, i understand the palestinian issue is your hot-button issue and i'm going to solve it. he promised them that he would close cuan bega began-- guantanamo and solve the palestinian problem. but the message that he sent to israel at the same
